Hi,

I was wanting to ask why you choose to delete users who don't post each month. My question is: Why?

Won't that lead to members having to sign up each time they wish to ask a question or need help?

I think given the nature and subject of this forum people will sign up but then leave for periods of time quite often.

We are not deleting users who don't post each month, we are deleting users who had zero posts for over a month. The reason for that is, we don't have use of members who can't make 1 post on our board and come just to check tutorials, download skins and went offline with zero posts, or not come back at all. Considering that in the past, we had over 100 members with zero posts, 80% of them haven't login on the forum for over a few months. Due to that, we decide to have this policy regarding zero posts. In that way I'm very aware of the users who visit and the one who don't, especially with hidden topic database, which logs every visit and cache it.

In the end, if I let inactive users here, right now we would have 463 users, which means we would have more inactive people, than active and that kind of the users are not needed here. It's better to have 10 active users who occasionally visit and post rather than 100 inactive.

I read your thread wrong.

I do apologize.

I thought you meant you delete people who haven't made a post each month.

I understand you now.
